There are several different types of pool alarms, and they work in different ways to detect and alert when someone enters the pool area.
How Pool Alarms Work #
- Surface wave pool alarms: These alarms float on the surface of the water and detect waves or disturbances in the water, such as when someone jumps or falls into the pool. They will sound an alarm when a disturbance is detected.
- Sub-surface pool alarms: These alarms are placed at the bottom of the pool and detect when someone enters the water by sensing changes in water pressure. They will sound an alarm when the water pressure changes, indicating that someone has entered the pool.
- Pool gate and door alarms: These alarms detect when the door or gate leading to the pool area is opened and will sound an alarm to alert when someone enters the pool area.
- AI Camera pool alarm: CamerEye’s pool alarm uses advanced artificial intelligence to detect and identify people, objects and movements in the pool area. It uses real-time monitoring and deep learning algorithms to analyze live video footage from cameras installed around the pool and can distinguish between people, animals and debris. It will send real-time alerts to your phone and can also be integrated to notify 911 in an emergency.
Which Pool Alarm is Best? #
Many pool industry professionals feel that a pool alarm that uses artificial intelligence (AI) is superior to other types of pool alarms because it offers advanced detection capabilities using computer vision and deep learning algorithms, real-time alerts, intelligent decision-making, and customizable settings. It can distinguish between people, animals and debris with high accuracy, reducing false alarms and allowing for immediate action to be taken. It also provides more convenience and a higher level of protection compared to traditional pool alarms, making it a superior choice for pool safety.
It is important to note that, regardless of the type of pool alarm you choose, it’s vital you make sure that it meets local codes and regulations, and that it is properly installed and maintained to ensure it is working properly.
